When was the last time you saw an advertisement? Whether you've "wished you were an Oscar Mayer Weiner" or you've just "Got Milk?" you have been influenced by propaganda. The animals in Animal Farm use propaganda from the first chapter of the book. Through this webquest we will investigate the Russian Revolution - the basis of the story of Animal Farm - and tie each character to their real-life counterpart. Once the historical significance is understood, we will turn our focus to propaganda.
No, Animal Farm is not just a bunch of talking animals. We're going to find out what they're really about, how they used propaganda to get what they wanted, and the effect this had in the real world (as well as the book). Good luck, and beware of propaganda!
